History of the Liberty Head “V” Nickel
In 1866, the United States Mint began producing the ill-fated Shield Nickel, which presented the mint with a number of headaches. Difficult to strike, thanks to an overly-detailed design, the nickel was issued for less than two decades.
In an attempt to increase nickel sales and simplify the striking process, Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber was commissioned to design a new nickel, which entered production in 1883. Barber’s new Liberty Head “V” Nickel was incredibly popular with the public, remaining in circulation for nearly 30 years.
